Game 2 - The royal "we", you know, the editorial...

There is something about the 5th inning. We had the Bombers at 2 runs and then in the 5th inning the bad guys start hitting. So it was 16 to 9 by the time the time we cashed in the third out there and then Mr. Umpire gave them there next three outs right away. That seemed fishy to me but in the end it completely did not matter. It was 16-10. THE TEAM wins

Condolences! The bums lost!

Lou had a grand slam and that is Jeffrey worthy but Terrence had something like four strikouts and around two walks so Terrence gets the Game 2 Jeffrey.

THE TEAM was operating with the minimum as far as women go. Sarah, CJ, Anabel and Sandy all had great games so it's hard to choose. Lets welcome Anabel and acknowledge her high OBP and cracking the code on keeping the ball in front of her by naming her Game 2 Maude.

Game 1 - You want a toe? I can get you a toe!

The mad dash for Winter 2010 theme landed on The Big Lebowski. I hope everybody saw it.

THE TEAM came out hitting and beat Fugittaboudit 22-16. Terrence did an outstanding job pitching. Peter made a great play on a line drive and Lou climbed the ladder to steal a base hit.

THE TEAM allowed two runs in the first and then got 6 runs back. After that everybody was hitting like crazy. It was a thing of beauty. Well, OK maybe "beauty" is a strong word, but the point is that we were hitting well and often and piling up the runs. By the 5th inning it was 18-2 and then Fugittaboudit remembered how to hit. There were only a couple of errors by THE TEAM, they got their ten runs in the inning with a lot of good hits. In the 6th THE TEAM and Fugittaboudit both scored four more runs.

Sweet Victory

Far F**kin' Out

What I had in mind as far as acknowledging the efforts of THE TEAM was to award both a lady and a gentleman something silly along the lines of the VGITPOSA. In keeping with The Big Lebowski I thought the outstanding male player could be The Dude and the outstanding female could be Maude Lebowski. Of course Maude Lebowski is not exactly a sunshiney protagonist but she is better than Bunny (Compulsive fornicator!). Let's go with Jeffrey and Maude. (Unless somebody has a better idea)

Victor hit a home run and, if memory serves, Peter hit one too but Game 1 Jeffrey is Dave for hitting a grand slam.

Sarah continued the RBI express but Game 1 Maude is Sandy for the hitting the RBI and scoring runs once she was on base.

We talkin' 'bout practice.

Many members of THE TEAM showed up to take advantage of having use of the diamond even though there would be no actual game. (Will Play 4 Beer forfeited)

So it looks like CJ and Lillian and Sandy and Sarah are already in mid-season form.

Terrence and Dave were great at the plate and in the field. There was a solid contribution from THE TEAM alumni John.

The line fron Caesars Palace in Las Vegas has an over/under of 7.5 wins for THE TEAM 2010 winter season.
